Rand Paul* Says That If He Becomes President, He Will Give In To Dem Demands To Dictate Union and Tax Law. Oh, and the Farm Bill and Environmental Law. Really.
Hot Mic Catches Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul Scheming
Here’s the transcript, notice the focus on principle:
PAUL: I just did CNN, and I just go over and over again: “We’re willing to compromise! We’re willing to negotiate.!” I don’t think they poll tested “we won’t negotiate.” I think it’s awful for [Democrats] to say that over and over again.
MCCONNELL: Yeah, I do too and I, and I just came back from that two hour meeting with them and that, and that was basically the same view privately as it was publicly.
PAUL: I think if we keep saying, “We wanted to defund it. We fought for that and that we’re willing to compromise on this,” I think they can’t, we’re gonna, I think… well, I know we don’t want to be here, but we’re gonna win this, I think.

As a liberal Democrat, I say: AWESOME! I can’t wait to vote for Paul for president in 2016!
Okay, okay, he’s really just saying that he’ll give in on only a few of those laws, not on all of them. But still!
CORRECTION: Originally, the title of this post said “Ron Paul,” rather than “Rand Paul.” (Arrrgggh. Talk about stepping on your own punch line!)

I believe the headline should read Rand Paul. Ron is his father and now retired.
i think you mean rand paul in your headline…
Thanks, Lyle and rjs. I just made the correction.
